Verified Encrypted Paper Audit Trails

Lookup NU author(s): Professor Peter Ryan



Voter Verified Paper Audit Trails (VVPAT) have been proposed as a mechanism to try to make touch screen style voting devices more trustworthy. We propose an analogous mechanism in cryptographic schemes that use encrypted receipts and argue that such a mechanism can yield considerable benefits, significantly greater in fact than the benefits of VVPAT in conventional voting systems that use plaintext ballots.
